The Adult Ministry at Longview FUMC invites men and women of all ages to participate in any or all of our groups and activities. In all events we hold, we intend to lead the adults of our church in intentional prayer, fellowship, and Bible study so that we may be ideal stewards of the congregation. If you are interested in joining a men’s or women’s group, or would just like more information about this ministry, contact the church office at 903-753-4463.
MOM TO MOM
Mom to Mom is a biblically-based parenting program designed around the Titus 2:4 concept of older women teaching and encouraging younger women in their relationships with their husbands and children. It includes quality instruction and small group discussion. This class is designed to be both a place of nurture for Christian women as well as a safe place to bring friends. Being a mom is hard work, and this group of women provides support, scriptural advice, and a loving place to share the stories of motherhood! Mom-to-mom meets Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM in the Genesis classroom (313).
UNITED METHODIST WOMEN
United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ. Their goal is to develop a creative and supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of FUMC Longview. UMW is the only organization in our church that is open to ALL women - and is a vital part of FUMC’s Women’s ministry, as they are called upon often to support all areas of the church. All women are invited to attend UMW’s monthly meetings! They meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 9:00 AM in the Faith Center.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES
Throughout the year, our Women’s Ministry sponsors several different Bible studies. They study a variety of topics ranging from Max Lucado’s “Anxious for Nothing,” to Dr. Sandra Richter’s “Epic of Eden.” These groups meet each Thursday morning. If you are interested in joining a bible study, please contact the church office at 903-753-4463 for more information!
WOMEN’S SPIRITUAL FORMATION GROUPS
We have several small groups of women that come together weekly and bimonthly in fellowship. Members of each formation group covenant together to support one another in their faith journey. They discuss what God is doing in their lives, where they struggle, how they can encourage each other, and join together in prayer for each member. These groups are not bible studies, but rather a faith journey together. Contact Pastor Debbie if you’d like to join a group!
An intergenerational retreat is offered during the year for women of all ages. Our theme for 2021 was “Treasured: A Jewel in His Crown.” We traveled to the Camp Allen Hotel & Conference Center in Navasota, TX where we had multimedia bible studies, fun times, quiet and meditative times, evening socials with refreshments, worship, music, campfire time, and buffet meals! Details for 2022 will be announced in the Spring!
TUESDAYS WITH JESUS
This men’s group reads a plethora of books from Christian authors and discusses the content and how it applies to each of their lives. These men meet each Tuesday at 5:30 PM in the Answers classroom (room 301).
MEN’S ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS
We have several small groups of men that come together weekly in fellowship to share food, the Bible, faith, life moments, or read through a pre-determined book of study to discuss as they read along! If you’d like to join a small group, contact Pastor David or 903-753-4463.
Throughout the year we invite all men in our congregation to events to casually enjoy fellowship and make some new friends along the way. Some activities we have enjoyed in the past include bowling, Pizza King lunches, lake days, fishing, skeet shooting, and missionary work! Stay tuned to the church calendar for upcoming men’s events and how to register!
EPIC stands for Experienced People In Christ. Whether its quarterly lunches, day trips, or casual coffee with friends we want our seniors to be active and engaged in the life of the church. Contact Janice Crane or the church office for more information about EPIC Ministries at LVFUMC!
